He claims Uhuru has allegedly 'elevated" Raila higher than Dp William Ruto.
The Opposition represented by Dp, Jeema and UPC had one major item on their itinerary; to ask President Museveni to think about or even state a date he was planning to ‘peacefully hand over power.’ As expected, especially by the skeptics, Museveni instead lectured them about his plans for a much longer stay than they may have expected.
In a veiled attacked on ODM leader Raila Odinga barely four days after the two leaders and President Kenyatta promised to unite the country during a tour of Kisumu, the Dp said there was no room in government for losers in last year’s General Election.
He was referring to Kutuny, MPs Alfred Keter and Silas Tiren who asked for investigations on the Dp over the maize scandal.
The Dp was to spend the night in Lamu before heading to Pate Girls Secondary School in Faza ward, where he will officially open the school today at 10am, one of Ruto’s aides told the Star yesterday.
Nasa-allied politicians Monday said the Dp’s call as unwelcome.
